There is only one file type that uses the .VQA extension:
Westwood Studios VQA Video
A VQA file is video used in a Westwood Studios video game. It contains a scene played within a game. VQA files were most notably used in early entries in the Command & Conquer video game series.
Because VQA files are uncommon, most popular media players cannot play them. However, you can play VQA files in VLC media player, and you can convert them to a more usable video format using FFmpeg.
